Tie One On!

| May 14, 2015 | Parties National

Paint the town… pink! The Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center was transformed into a floral fantasy for the evening as more than 800 pink-clad partygoers gathered to celebrate the city’s iconic cherry blossoms. Guests mixed and mingled among lush, live gardens and topiaries custom designed by LandDesign while taking part in interactive art stations offering activities like origami, caricatures and watercolor— all while sipping on pinkhued cocktails, of course.

Guests—including DC Councilman Phil Mendelson, WUSA9’s Allyson Rae and National Cherry Blossom Festival President Diana Mayhew—nibbled on cherry-themed appetizers and desserts from 10 Tysonsarea restaurants, including Founding Farmers and José Andrés’ America Eats. Pink-minded guests also flexed their flower power by creating pink tissue-paper blooms to add to the party’s flowering-tree art project.

Petals with a purpose! The Pink Tie Party serves as the official spring soiree for cherry blossom season, but it also raises funds to help the world-famous festival continue year after year. -Photos by Jason Dixon
